Sick-etiquette Tips For Cold/Flu Season {Prize Pack Giveaway}

Sometimes, getting a cold or the flu is inevitable.  Your kids may have brought a bug home from school or you picked up something while sweating it out at the gym. You can get a virus anywhere! Just right now I have a little one at home with severe asthma and a cough.  The struggle is real!

Sick-etiquette Tips For Cold/Flu Season {Prize Pack Giveaway}

For those times when we do succumb to sickness, we must remember to keep germs to ourselves so we don’t continue the never-ending circle-of-sickness. Check out our “sick-etiquette” tips below to ensure that even if you do get sick you won’t be passing the virus to everyone around.

  • Stay home if you are sick. If you have a bad cold or the flu please stay home, if possible take the day off work and keep sick little ones at home. Try to take the time to off to recover, your body surely needs it! Don’t take your child to school or indoor playgrounds either. I try to keep my boys at home whenever they are sick.
  • Wash your hands a lot: Keep washing your hands, especially after blowing your nose or touching your mouth/nose. Teach your little ones to wash their hands as well.
  • Disinfect highly transited areas: Use disinfecting wipes to keep your desk/work area clean from germs at work and door handles at home. I always keep a pack of disinfecting wipes in my purse, ready to use when needed.
  • Discard dirty tissues: Don’t leave dirty tissues lying around, they are gross and can spread your cold. Teach your little ones to put them in the garbage after using them as well.
  • Get the flu vaccine: Get vaccinated because prevention is key.  You can get your vaccination at your local Shoppers Drug Mart Pharmacy, with no appointment necessary!  We get ours there every year and it is part of our yearly prevention plan. With children suasthmag of ashtma, it is a must for our family.

    Make it an annual habit of getting a flu shot for you and the family. It won’t provide complete protection, but it will reduce the odds of acquiring the flu. Some people find it a chore, but a measly flu shot is a lot easier to deal with than the fever and pain of a flu in bodies big and small.

    I try to get as much rest as possible because I know thats when I get sick fastest, is when I don’t get enough sleep and then I start popping chewable vit c & D that i have in hopes to stave off the sickness.

    Great tips above, but I also recommend (if you are able) to stay physically active while you have a cold or flu. If you can run do so, lift weights, go for a walk in the fresh air, take the stairs at work. Exercise boosts the immune system and helps expunge the bugs.

  168. Lisa Williams — December 26, 2017 @ 12:01 am (#)

    I have a few little tips and tricks for preventing the flu and cold. One is I always carry hand sanitizer mine is doterra sanitizing spray. I always spray my hands throughout the day especially since I’m touching doorknobs and things others have touched. I also drink a lot of water throughout the day as it’s important to stay hydrated. Several times a week or daily if you want I boil fresh ginger, I pour the fresh ginger water in a coffee mug and I add 1 tablespoon of honey, a slice of freshly squeezed lemon and I drink it up. It taste good and it’s good for your system and clearing it out. Those are my main little tips and tricks.

    As a family we stay home when we are sick as much as we can to avoid spreading it. Also we practice lots of hand washing, especially right after arriving home.
